VoiceThread is a popular Web 2.0 program and has been used by many educators because of its ease of use and flexibility. It is an asynchronous online discussion board with audio/video capabilities. Various studies show that VoiceThread promotes students’ engagement and collaboration in different subject areas at all grade levels. The purpose of the presentation is to share the author’s recent experiment on VoiceThead in an online course. Thirty-eight pre-service and in-service teachers engage in two different tasks using VoiceThread. After they complete the assignments, they respond to an online survey for assessing the pedagogical affordance of VoiceThread.
